7:00am
good morning. it is thursday, february 7th, 2013. welcome to "cbs this morning." the northeast faces a record-breaking blizzard. the latest on the storm's tracks. it could be the creation of the world's largest airline. we'll have details on the mega merger that might be days away. did police ignore calls for help. you'll see the video that cost big city officers their job. and karl rove goes after ashley judd. but we begin this morn with today's "eye opener," your world in 90 seconds. >> a monster blizzard takes aim at the northeast.
7:01am
>> a blockbuster event friday into saturday potentially bringing not one, but two feet of snow. >> this would make it one of those powerful winter storms to hit the area in years. >> get your shovels ready. >> if it happens like the computers are saying, we have quite a historic event going on. >> the senate committee will hold hearing on john brennan. >> brennan is expected to be questioning about the growing controversy of drone attacks on american terror suspects. >> the white house order top lawmakers be given secret documents about the administration's secret drone program. >> police across southern california hunting for a former believe who was fired and is now threatening to harm others. >> governor chris christie is lashing out at the former white house doctor who says he's so heavy he might die in office.
7:02am
>> u.s. secrets exposed. >> iran is claiming it has decoded footage from a downed u.s. drone. >> a surprising about-face from lance armstrong, now planning to cooperate with anti-doping officials. >> something you don't usually see. >> a spicy little guy. >> all that. >> hairks i just met you, this is crazy, but here's my number, call me maybe be. >> federal reserve says it has six wait calls temporary vulnerability which allows hackers to briefly breach one of its internal websites. >> they could have made off with as much as negative 14 trillion dollars. >> on "cbs this morning.." >> there ooh is a new smartphone app that lets you communicate with your plants. the app is called "i will die alone."
7:03am
captioning funded by cbs welcome to "cbs this morning." 35 years ago today new england was digging out from the blizzard of '78, one of the biggest storms of the 20th century. forecasters say new englanders could see history repeat itself this weekend. >> a major snowstorm is passing through the great lakes. by friday night it could make travel nearly impossible in parts of the northeast. cbs weather consultant david bernard is with us. david, what is the potential for this storm? >> i think you set set it up just right. there are blizzard conditions expected friday night into saturday. the blizzard watching green has now been extended for eastern long island and connecticut. everyone else is under at least a winter storm watch at the current time. now, let's give you the setup.
7:04am
this is the potential storm track beginning friday morning. i think the friday morning storm track is what we're going to notice. this area of low pressure over the carolinas that's going to rapidly move through the northeast during the day and by the time we get to friday evening it may start as rain right along the coast, but the inland areas in blue, that is ail going to be snow. and as we go friday night into saturday morning it should be all snow across the northeast and new england and that's when the blizzard will really be ranging late friday night into saturday morning and even into saturday afternoon. southeastern new england could still be in blizzard conditions and very heavy snow. how much snow are we talking about? >> this pink area, that's where we think there could be up to 2 feet of snow. it's not out of the question. some areas might see more than that back to the southwest. the question for the new york city area is going to be how long is the rain going to last before we change over to snow, but even in the city, there's the potential for up to six, up to 12 inches of snow, right into
7:05am
manhattan as well. >> thanks. cbs news has learned this morning american airlines is close to a merger with us airways creating the world east largest airline. peter greenberg is in las vegas. peter goorksd morning. what's the significance if this happens? >> you said it, charlie. an a valuation of about $10 billion. the only thing that's unresolved right now is the final hierarchy of the corporate board as well as the executive officers of the newly merged airline. >> passengers are saying this doesn't sound like a bigger deal for me, a bigger airline. how does it end up for passengers. >> bigger airlines don't stay bigger for that much longer. they tend to cut capacity and routes, especially domestically, and go for higher yielding international routes. look for that to happen. the real bottom line is whether the unions are going to get
7:06am
along. remember, they signed secret deals with us airways. the pilots have already met with others. flight attendants have met with flight attendants to work out seniority issues. this could happen very quickly. >> peter, what happens if this deal doesn't go forward? what happens if it falls through and what does it mean for americans? >> well, remember, americans have always taken the position that they want to come out of it as a standard carrier. they thought bigger was better. remember, american and u.s. merge overlap on routes of about 13 different routes. so when american filed for bankruptcy, they only had $5 billion to deal with. there's every kaegs that this will go through because they have their employment agreements in place. they're going to go to the bankruptcy judge and say we have a restructuring plan and merger in place. it's unlikely at this point, although it could happen, that
7:07am
the bankruptcy judge is going to overturn that. >> peter greenberg, thank you. late last night the white house gave in to growing pressure. it released classified information to congress. the move comes just hours before the president's top counter terrorism adviser john brennan heads to capitol hill for his confirmation hearing. bill plante has more. >> reporter: good morning, norah. that's no accident. the release of an unclassified memo explaining the policy earlier this week only increased the pressure on the white house. and last night the president gave in. the man who will feel the heat on this today is john brennan, the president's counterterrorism adviser who's been nominated to head the cia. brennan testifies before the 15-member senate intelligence committee, including republican susan collins. >> in many cases we're talking
7:08am
about hardened terrorists, but we do need to have a different approach when an american citizen is involved. >> reporter: democrats are ee kwully concern. they want to know brennan's role in the white house-approved drone attack on terrorists who are american citizens. on wednesday senator ron wyden threatened to pull out all the stops to get the justice department's legal opinion which the president leased to the committee but which will not be made public. >> the information that is held -- kept secret is kept secret for national security reasons, not to keep it from the american people. >> reporter: the drone program puts president obama in an awkward position. as a senator and presidential candidate he criticized the bush administration anti-terrorism policy of enhanced interrogation of torture of suspects. >> this administration is acting like violence is a way to enhance our security. it is not. there are no shortcuts to
7:09am
protecting america. >> reporter: now the white house administration is being criticized for doing something outside the law. >> we have something that even president bush didn't do, which is the order the killing of a united states citizen without clear evidence of an immediate attack. >> reporter: in a written response, they're constantly redefining its standards and he doesn't believe new legislation is necessary. the white house has been under a lot of pressure from democrats as well as republicans and this release seems to be time to avoid an embarrassing holdup of brennan's nomination. senior security analyst juan zarate working during the administration of president bush. what's the hardest question brennan will get and what will he say in answer? >> i think, charlie, he's going to face two types of questions. the first will be a question
7:10am
about his past involvement in policies that were controversial during the bush administration. keep in mind john brennan is a long-time cia professional, was the right hand right after 9/11, and so he's going to fies questioning from democrats about his prior role. he's also going to face the questions that bill plante was just talking about, questions about targeting of american citizens, the authority to target with lethal force, and what his role and the administrati administration's views are on precisely those policies. >> juan, as you know, president obama was concerned about secrecy in 2009. he ordered the release of those documents about controversial interrogation policies under the presidency of george w. bush, but then he kept this memo secret. isn't it hypocritical of president obama to keep this secret given what he said in the past? >> well, i happen to believe it was probably a wrong decision to release the 2009 memos. i think certainly there's a
7:11am
little bit of hypocrisy here, norah, to use your terminology. but i think there are reasons for keeping some of this information secret, so that the enemy doesn't understand what our thinking is, processes are, evidence is that warrants a possible strike, for example. there are reasons to keep it secret but certainly the administration is under pressure. >> but, juan, it's not even secret to the american people. the point congress is saying the senate intelligence committee that was created to make sure the government doesn't carry these out, they didn't even get the memo. as senator wyden says, doesn't every american deserve to know when it's legal to kill americans? >> absolutely, norah, and think the administration made a mistake here for not having congress involved earlier on, especially when you're talking about an american citizen. that's the key role of cob here. i think the key question is how can the executive branch be
7:12am
judge, jury, and executioner of american citizen without some outside processor, some your sight to monitor this. thank's what the administration is dealing with now with the release of the memos to the senate. >> do you believe that coming out of this the administration might chairj the policy of killing americans without explanation or analysis? >> well, i think, charlie, what's going to happen is you're going to continue to see an internal debate within the be subjected to targeted should- strikes. there's already a lot of controversy, a lot of blowback in countries like yemen and pakistan, questions about the violation of sovereignty, and ashlgs charlie, importantly, a question about what is al qaeda? al qaeda is changing as we speak. it's morphing. it has its regional groups. the question of who is a member of al qaeda, who can be classified as a senior operational leader i think will continue to bedevil officials and restrain who they likely
7:13am
target with lethal action. >> juan, just quickly, how dangerous is it for u.s. national security that it was disclosed we're flying these drones into yes, ma'am about out of the base in saudi arabia? >> i think it's never good to have an ill filtration of going after terrorists. it also complicates our relations with countries like saudi arabia who want to keep these things secret and if we can't keep them secret, they're not willing to work with us. at the owned testify day, these are platforms and techniques to get at these terrorists we can't reach in traditional ways. >> juan zarate, thank you. >> thank you. and if congress doesn't approve a bunt deal in the next three weeks, billions of dollars in automatic spending cuts will go into effect. david martin is showing us why it's already having a direct impact on our military. >> it will leave the u.s. with one
7:14am
instead of two aircraft carriers in the persian gulf at a time when u.s. and iran appear to be on a collision course over its nuclear capeths. he says lack of a second carrier could make a difference in a crisis. >> what it does change is the opportunity to have additional capability immediately. there will be additional time distance associated with bringing another vessel over if that's required. >> reporter: defense secretary panetta warned that would be the least of it as the automatic budget cuts known as sequestration would be taken effect at the beginning of march. >> if these cuts happen, there will be a serious disruption in defense programs and a sharp decline in our military readiness. >> reporter: this army document says three fourths of its combat
7:15am
brigade will have to delay their training for several months resulting in failure to meet demands of the military strategy by the end of this year. afraid it will have to take 18 billion dollars out of its own budget, the army has already stopped maintenance of 1,300 vehicles and several thousand weapons. according to this document it would cut its overall use by one third with the results that some would have to be ground. flying time would be cut by 18% sniet puts at risk our fundamental mission of protecting the american people. >> reporter: combat operations in afghanistan would not be affected by the cuts, but to pull out of $20 billion worth of equipment could be delayed. for "cbs this morning," david martin, the pentagon. new information this morning highlights the link between senator robert menendez and one of his top campaign donors. we showed you last week how the
7:16am
new jersey democrat recently paid more than $50,000 for trips he took on a private jet owned by dr. solomon mel get. "the washington post" is now reporting that menendez asked federal officials twice, raising concerns about a medicare audit of dr. melgin. he's reordering him to pay over $9 million in medicare. breaking news this morning. three southern california officers have been shot. police in riverside, california, has just confirmed one of the suspects is dead. the suspect used to be one of their own. he's already linked to a double murder. security has been beefed up for high-ranking officials at lapd. bill witd ter shows us why the suspect may have given clues he was about to commit a killing spree. >> his current whereabouts are
7:17am
unknown as we're asking for the public's health. >> reporter: christopher lawrence the corner. he's still on the loose and they're searching for his blue nissan pickup. dorner was fired in 2008 after a review board ruled he had made false statements about his field training officer. monica's father was on the board that reviewed his case and led to his firing. police now believe revenge was the motive behind the double murder. >> of particular interest was a multi-page manifesto in which he has linked himself. >> reporter: dorner wrote, i never had the opportunity to have a family of my own. i'm terminating yours. it also threatens violence against other lapd officers.
7:18am
the violence of action will be hiechl i will bring unconventional and asymmetric ka warfare to those in lapd uniform. for "cbs this morning" bill whitak whitaker, los angeles. it is time to show you some of this morning's headlines from around the globe. "the new york times" look at internal e-mails to suggest that jpmorgan executives knew about serious flaws within thousands of home loans. the documents allegedly showed the bank altered or dismissed critical reviews of troubles home loans to make them more appealing to investors. >> "the washington post" says five colleges gave data that was exaggerated. they're closely watched by students who are looking for colleges. bucknell university, george washington and tulane admit to

police in los angeles were chasing a suspected drunk driver when he spun out of control. it slammed into a retaining wall and burst into flames. police were able to rescue the suspect. welcome back to "cbs this morning." s they even skad the horror of several of their colleagues killed in algeria. i spoke with three men about the moment last month when terrorists attacked an oil fra silt, these three men all work for the oil company bp. all witnessed the simultaneous assaults. frazier, a petroleum engineer was on a bus bound for nearby
7:31am
town. it had just pulled out of the main gate. >> i heard something, and my initial reaction was, oh, know, we've blown a tire. >> it sounded like a blown tire. >> yeah. and then i looked out the left-hand window and i saw dozens and dozens of red streaks pass the -- pass the left-hand side of the bus, and then -- >> you were under attack. >> yes. people started to scramble, and then bullets starting to come through the front windshield. even was, as fast as they could, getting to where they could lay down in the walkway of the seats and get as flat as possible. i don't know. even was so calm. you become so calm. it wasn't how i thought i would have reacted at all. >> no screaming. >> no. it was very silent, very organized. it was as if we had trained for it but we hadn't. you could hear bullets starting
7:32am
to hit the side of the bus, and it wasn't one, two, or three bullets. it was -- it was hundreds, just bam, bam, bam, bam, bachm, on t side of the bus. >> they battled the militants for three hours. >> they saved our lives. they returned fire, heavy, heavy, heavy gunfire. they stood by the bus and shot back and kept the terrorists from getting onto the bus. >> charlie, you're the first to speak with them and get the inside details. it's an incredible story it's an incredible story knowing they're under attack and they're the target and they can hear the terrorists walking down the hall in one case and in three separate locations. it's really an incredible story. the interesting thing, we shot that interview in one three-hour time. they came from different places
7:33am
but our own matt glick was on ground for weeks trying to make a relationship with them to make them feel comfortable for telling the story so he deserves some of the credit for what you see in this interview. >> i look forward to it. >> you can see my entire interview with the former hostages sunday night on cbs. actress ashley judd hasn't decided if she's going to run for mitch mcconnell's seat. but they're not waiting. there's an online ad targeting judd. >> someone who knows what's good for us. >> obama care has done so much for us. >> someone who shares our values. someone from out of state who understands us. >> i don't know about hillbillies who golf. >> her own grandmother says she's a hollywood liberal, but isn't that what we need?
7:34am
ashley judd, an obama-following radical hollywood liberal who's right at home here in tennessee. i mean kentucky. >> cbs news political director john dickerson. first i thought the election was over. now there are more campaigns again. why target someone who's not said she's even running for the seat? >> it doesn't push one hot button. it's an entire dashboard of hot buttons from liberal to -- one, conservatives complain about media working against them. this uses the media in their cause, this ad's going to get a lot of coverage even though it's just a web ad because she's a celebrity. so for american crossroads it improves their reputation. there's a button at the end. also for mitch mcconnell, the republican senator in kentucky, this is a preemptive strike to
7:35am
knock back a possible opponent who would have -- create a stir in the race, maybe makes her think twice about running. >> what's interesting about this is mitch mcconnell may very well face primary opposition and carl wloev has a lot to do with how the money's spent for american crossroads has said he will target in some cases republicans unlikely to win who may defeat people who have a real chance to win, especially incumbents. >> right. so there are a couple of things going on. for mitch mcconnell, there's an old cliche, you run unopposed or run scared. why take her on? he would be able to run against her but it would be expensive and distracting and very unpredictab unpredictable. they want to keep that from happening because the republicans have a chance to pick up the senate with a lot of vulnerable candidates. there's been a little rumbling of that. nothing more than a web ad from
7:36am
the right attacking o'connell for negotiating with obama on the debt deal. he hired rand paul's delegate. so mcconnell loves politics. he's not letting anything go to chance here. on the larger point of karl rove, yes, there's a question about how to get candidates who can actually win in these races. republicans feel like they have control of the senate if they'd run smarter races. >> john dickerson, thanks. a billion dollar is up for grabs and some of it could be yours. mellody hobson will show us why life insurance is going unpaid. and tomorrow we're going to the grammys. gayle will be in with ll cool j and "call me maybe's" carly rae jebson. that's tomorrow on "cbs this morning."

millions of-americans find that billions of benefits are not being paid out. with more we welcome mellody hobson. good morning. >> good morning. >> how does this happen? >> it's a crazy thing but it happens because the beneficiaries don't file a clachlt most insurers agree that the onus is on the beneficiary and they have no lool obligation to find you if you're a beneficiary. >> they also found that they're collecting premiums even after someone has died. >> yeah. >> how does that happen? >> this is a little crazy and a little snarky. what they do is if they have an annuity where you put up an investment account with them, they're paying you every month. they reconcile with the social security desk master files but
7:42am
they don't do that on the life insurance side because because they kind of don't want to know that you died so that way they can keep the premiums coming until they find out that you've passed away. so that i had two different systems inside the same company, and the state insurers figured that out when they did audits and said this didn't work. >> yeah, whose fault is this? you've got to be smart about knowing that if one of your loved one dies, you have to take the initiative. >> you're not going to like my answer on this. the ultimate responsibility lies with the beneficiary and they have to know they're on the policy. so it sounds so mundane, but so many people don't tell their loved ones where the policy is, what the company is, and they're actually a named beneficiary. as a result of that, they're clueless. then the person passes away and in times of great emotional stress they're trying to figure this out. so again the insurance company
7:43am
will send a letter or two, but that's not or responsibility. >> so do the insurance companies consider this a minor problem or a big problem? >> they consider it a minor problem, which, again, is going to surprise you. >> they get to keep all the money. >> that's billion dollars a year that doesn't get paid out, the average claim being about $2,000. here's the issue. against the backdrop of what they pay out every year, they pay out about $58 billion in life insurance policy. this billion dollars is 2% of what they pay out. for them this is small change. >> when you list the beneficiary is to let them know you have listed them and make sure they have the right inform snoogs know where your policy is. realize when you get older you're not going to realize these things. know the policies of parents, loved ones, aunts. make sure that beneficiary information is updated. i talk to insurance brokers who just write in a name no,
7:44am
address, no other contact information. that really doesn't work. >> mellody hobson. welcome. >> welcome. police officers risk their lives every day. at least they're supposed to. we'll show you the video that's shattering the image of one major american police force next on "cbs this morning." tell me you love me.

you. it's 8:00. welcome back to "cbs this morning." today's stormy weather in the south and midwest could turn into a monster snowstorm here in the northeast. the latest forecast is coming up. and doctors say we'll have three times as many alzheimer's patients by 2050. that will be a huge challenge to the health care system. we'll look at the impact to that. but first here's today's "eye opener" at 8:00. >> there's a potential for historic snows and blizzards across the northeast tonight and particularly friday and friday night. >> a major snowstorm is passing
8:01am
through the great lakes this morning. by friday night it could make travel nearly impossible. >> cbs news has learned american airlines is close to a merger with us airways creating a major airlines. >> the bottom line is whether the unions will get along. remember they signed secret deals with u.s. airways that they wanted to work with them as well. >> john brennan heads to capitol hill for questioning. >> he's going to face questions about the targeting of american citizens, the authority to target with lethal force. three southern officers have been shot. the former lapd officer already linked the a murder. ashley judd. >> why target somebody who hasn't even said that they're running for the seat. >> it doesn't just push one hot button. it's an entire dashboard of hot buttons. >> brooklyn has many things but this you don't often see, a goat on the loose in the parking lot. >> you're really into this story. >> i am into the story.
8:02am
i'll take it. >> charlie's taking the goat. >> i'm charlie rose with garl king and norah o'donnell. tens of millions of people in the northeast are buying gas and groceries this morning. a powerful winter storm is heading their way. blizzard watches are up already in parts of new england. >> the first snowflakes are expected tonight and up to 24 inches is possible by the time it's over. let's go to cbs news weather consultant david bernard. david, this sounds very serious. what are you seeing right now? >> gayle, you're right. it is going to be serious. we need to talk about all these elements. it's going to be the snow and very high winds. that means we could have major power outages all across the northeast, the i-95 corridor, especially for northern new jersey, new york, extending through hartford and providence and boston. notice the large area of the blizzard watch that's now in green and that's going to be in effect beginning tomorrow and then as we go throughout the day saturday. that's when some of the worst is going to be. so let's look at what we're expecting for snowfall totals.
8:03am
this is a broad idea of what could happen. anywhere in here, this is where the blizzard watch is, and that's where some of the heaviest snow might be. we could be talking about 24 inches of snow, maybe higher in some locations. now, the further south and west you go back into the new york city area, there'll be more of a rain period of friday before it changes to all snow friday night. that's going to affect how much snow we see in the new york city metro area. this is for friday evening at 7:00 p.m. here's the low developing off the jersey shore. again, it will be rain or mix of rain along the coast. inland areas will already be heavy snow. and, guys, as we go into saturday morning a full blown blizzard it looks leak for much of new england and high winds and blieblds snow. travel conditions are going to become really dangers if not impossible in these areas. >> thank you. we're also following a breaking story in southern california. three police officers have been shotover night and one of them has died. a manhunt is under way in
8:04am
riverside, california, at this hour. the suspected gunman is a former los angeles police officer and one-time navy reservist. he was already wanted in a double murder. investigators say he left a manifesto behind after the first killings warning of more violence. iran captured a cia drone two years ago and iran claims to have video taken of that aircraft. iran state-run tv carried the video last night. u.s. officials say the surveillance drone malfunctioned and was forced to land inside iran. they have not commented on the video. yesterday we heard a former white house doctor say new jersey governor chris christie is bound to have a heart attack or stroke if he does not lose weight. as elaine quijano reports, governor chris christie did not waste time. by wednesday he was fed up with the weight debate. >> she should probably be the

8:06am
i can only share with you that that phone conversation when i think of it, the words gracious and appreciative do not come to mind. >> reporter: christie says he cares about his health and always has a plan to trim down. >> in terms of people in the state, being concerned about whether or not it prevents me from being able to do my job effectively, i think they've seen the results of that. >> reporter: for "cbs this morning," elaine quijano. >> sa sew what do we think about this? >> i think the governor knows that he has a weight problem. >> yes. >> but it's -- you know, it's difficult to hear when someone says something like that and certainly for his children. >> yeah. i think that's the problem. to know that your child sees on the news that you're possibly going to die. that's very upsetting to a young child but governor christie has said he knows he needs to lose weight and the doctor is not backing down. >> she should have said she's concerned about his health not die in office. >> you're right, charlie. there's another way.

8:09am
saturdays would remain open. >> the choice is either change some of the service or raise prices. and people don't want prices raised will make the changes in service. >> reporter: the post master general says the move will save an estimate 2d billion a year. still that will do little to stop financial bleeding of an operation that lost $16 billion last year alone. >> we don't take any tax money. our revenues pay for what we do. we need to act responsely with good common sense and that's what we're doing. >> there is a question about whether this plan is even legal. technically the postal service needs approval from congress if it wants to cut service, but the post master general says he's moving ahead no matter what and he hopes congress won't stand in the way. norah, charlie, gayle? >> thank you. cbs news has learned lance armstrong will be sued today by a company that paid him more than $12 million.

8:34am
this because most corporate ceos have to think about entitlements. >> right. >> what do you have to say that will help the president and the country understand the challenge? >> well, charlie, the motivation for this is the government's budget is in very rough shape as we all know and entitlements like medicare and social kurt eat that up now. if we're going to dras this problem we have to do something about these two programs particularly medicare. so what we suggested is there are modest modifications to these programs that will phase in other a long period of too that would address to a very large degree the problems that these programs have caused and think caused relatively little inconvenience or harm to those folks over time who had received these modifications. >> and you're also focusing on immigration. you have strong feelings that and i want to know what you think about the president's proposal for immigration. but i want to know, gary, how did you become one of the people that is advising the president?
8:35am
>> i'm not sure i'm advising him. they do seek counsel from a handful. i'm not a big advocate for one party or the other, i'm just deeply interested in certain issues. in the case of immigration reform, both, i think, for normative reasons and because the economy's so weak we need to solve the problem the country faces and i think the president and to a lesser degree the senate have come forward with a proposal that will do that. >> everybody thinks we need a solution. the question is what is the solution. do you think there should be a path way to citizen ship? >> i mean certainly in nevada there are undocumented workers. >> i think we do. i think we need to resolve the issues favorably. > as a ceo door you want to do e-verify? there are a lot of people who say i don't want to -- we are helping. >> you are. >> yes. >> that's one of the things in senator rubio's partnershortfol.
8:36am
and you think they want to do that us that ba us they want verified employees? >> absolutely. >> i don't know quite how to handle that delicately as perhaps we should. i certainly don't oppose the notion that there be sequencing of people who have cued up under circumstances and those who find themselves here otherwise. >> one last question about entitlements. would you be in favor of raising the age of it by two or four years as well as medicare? >> both. >> we have another big story. all i keep thinking about is hurricane sandy. your area was hard hit. how are they doing? >> they remain very tough. they operate casinos in atlantic city. of course, our employees do as well and it's been tough. so we've certainly continued to feel it. revenues are off as people are not in a position to pursue entertainment or leisure time. >> i'm just thinking the last thing we need now is another big monster storm snow you're

8:38am
okay, sisu. so she's got a good memory. >> reporter: if your dog chooses the empty cup, through games like these they make decisions in how to be successful in life, in this case, finding food. >> we just played a bunch of games we played with human infapts with dogs and discovered they're add good as kids. >> reporter: basically as cogoo as kids? dogs are. hearsays they understand. >> most people thing chimpanzees, monkeys, that ier the ones most similar to humans. are they? >> grade apes are the closest genetic relative and in many ways the way their psychology operates it's very, very similar to us. but in some ways it's really different. they're not very good at reading

8:40am
>> a socialite. >> that her success in life comes from here communication from humans. >> reporter: merritt says knowing how her dog thinks to train her. >> i can take the neverings from the dognition profile and it allows me to be able to do things faster. >> reporter: as for dr. hare, he hopes his stois eventually lead to pairing particular dog personalities to specific jobs, anything from canine police dogs to seeing eye dogs to military dogs. >> what makes dogs so indispensable is they're amazing at working together with us. >> rebecca says she found a girlfriend for barkley at duke. >> we like her already, don't we? >> yes, we do. >> there's barkley. that's a handsome dog, charlie. >> it is barkley. >> is he an ace or a maverick?

second. when you look at that tape, though, really, what do you think when you look at that? >> how great it was to be 43 like it is to be 71. the singer/songwriter's best creation "halleluiah" is now the subject of a new book called "holy are the broken." anthony mason is with us. theernl anthony, good morning. >> you're not getting older, charlie. you're getting better. it's used for weddings and funerals alike and of course it's become the go-to emotional trigger at every telethon and memorial. it never was a top hit. it sooeshs lreceived little fan years. it's a ballad that's become an
